the impact on the health system, the estimated 10,000 children will have died and because of that prominent chinese newspaper has resigned in protest against media censorship. worked for the southern metropolis daily, he posted his resignation letter on line, criticizing the tight control of the press last month the president tours outlets demanding absolutely loyalty from the media his parting words on his waiver account basically said i can't stand it any more, he said i can no longer follow the communist party and go down on my knees that is very very sect, very blunt, and it is a measure of the push pack you are seeing by a certain number of brave journalists who aren't prepared to
1:12 pm
tolerate the current crack down on media, of course this is china there's only so mush they can do. we have to see in this overall context. we have had 20 people who have disappeared as the police continue for the a tor of an anonymous letter that appears on the chinese waiver calling on the country's president to resign. the hunt for the author is intensifying. regards the media as a tool of the government. it is very important that he controls the media. >> tens of millions of dollars worth of vaccine goss missing in china we tell you ply there's a risk to patient safety.
1:13 pm
1:14 pm
>> "inside story" takes you beyond the headlines, beyond the quick cuts,
1:15 pm
beyond the soundbites. we're giving you a deeper dive into the stories that are making our world what it is. worn by an egyptian man did not contain explosives. all passengers and crew were freed unharmed. syrian officials say they have removed 150 bombs planted be i the islamic state of levant in ancient orbing logical site since they recaptured the city on sunday. and an editor at a prominent chinese newspaper has resigned in protest. he demanded absolutely
1:16 pm
loyalty from state media. more on our main story now. onboard the egypt air flight at the time of the hijacking. i asked her what the most scary moment was. >> it was the moment when i knew it was hi jacked and we were above the sea. i felt like he will either bomb the plane, or he will just demand that we land in the sea, or just keep on flying until there's no fuel. so i just had several scenarios on my mind, trying to figure out what could happen and i was trying to make peace with it. i was horrified. and we took off normally, like normal, nothing was weird. maybe after a while everyone noticed that we should have landed and we haven't landed yet, and then i was looking out the window, and i saw the sea. so it was weird to see the sea. and then we noticed there was
1:17 pm
something wrong, but nobody imagined that it could be that kind of thing. so then a crew passed by and collects all the passports without saying any reason. and that they cannot say anything more, they just immediate passports, i think about now 45 minutes later one of the cabin crew members just told us that we had been hijacked. and that was it. they didn't say anything else. they didn't say by whom, or what demands are, or where we are heading, just flying above the sea, and that was it. a campaign manager where he allegedly grabbed a female reporter. he has been charged with simple battery for intentionally grabbing and bruising the arm of journalist michelle fields. this took place at a campaign event for trump the 8th.
1:18 pm
how serious is this? >> well, it won't result in an lengthy prison sentence, but it is disconcerting that the campaign manager is facing a charge of misdemeanor battery. under florida law, the bar is pretty low, but it suggests if you intentionally lay on your hands on someone, and it is not wanted then you have committed battery. the legal limit is a year, but he is a man of good character with no previous convictions. and of course is a former new hampshire police officer. but he is of course insisting that he is innocent. this all relates back to an innocent at a trump event that a reporter said she was asking donald trump a question about affirmative action, and at that point she felt a hand on her arm and i can't recollecting her back quite forcefully almost to the drowned. she said she had a number of
1:19 pm
witnesses. and afterwards he denied he even met the reporter, in fact said that she was dill lewissal. now he was invited to a police station in florida just after 8:00 this morning. and he was charged with that assault. donald trump himself has tweeted in the last hour, saying that he is a good man, and if you look at the case, there is nothing there. but of course, he will now appear in court, in may. he says he will plead not guilty, perhaps one line of defense may well be that he felt that posed some sort of threat to donald trump who at that point, remember, and still does, have secret service protection. and is that is why he proud her back, but if you look a it is video, you can see that she is walking alongside donald trump. she stops fairly abruptly, and seems to be pulled back some distance, so it will be
1:20 pm
interesting to see how this panned out. another indent in which has been an incredible election race, and another incident where donald trump is yet again at the center. >> allen fisher, thank you. >> police in pakistan have arrested more than 200 people, and questioned more than 5,000. the arrests come as the army launched a military crack down. promising to statute out such attacks. the faction of the pakistan taliban says it carried out the attack was targeting christians but most of the victims were muslims. the device went off near a children's play area elsewhere in pakistan, around 5,000 security forces are preparing to remove protestors that staged a sit in on the capitol. several thousands have been camped at the main avenue, close to key government buildings since sunday and supporters have executed who
1:21 pm
was hung on february the 29th r over his called for blahs my reform. who joins us live now, so are these protestors accepting the deadline to move, or do you think they are trying to stay on? >> well, the government has given them a two hour deadline, which has already passed, now, in the last ditch effort, two senior critics have been sent by the government to try and see if there's still a way out with a negotiated settlement to try to get this crowd disbursed without the use of force. however, at the same time, as you mentioned about 5,000 to 7,000 security forces and personnel are on the ready and about to move in. if the negotiations fail. now importantly, when these people first came into town, they were over 10,000 strong.
1:22 pm
now we are told there's about 800 to 1,000 at the max. so it won't be a problem for the security forces to be able to disburse them. however, last minute efforts as i mentioned are underway, and it will be important to see whether those talks do yield any results. >> tell us about the arrests and how the government is proceeding in that area compared to other areas in pakistan when they do bring in the military? >> well, what the military decided oven the day of attack, which was on sunday easter that prompted the them to go into a high level meet canning was decided that the operation would be extended to the province. since then, there have been a number of operations many several cities and as you
1:23 pm
mentioned earlier, over 5,000 people were detained we are told about 5,000 of them were cleared. 250 are still under detention. the pair military forces under the new operation will have sweeping powers to arrest anybody and interrogate anybody. the specific job will go to hide outs for militants who may be in a particular area, but these will be intelligence backed operations so it won't be guns and artillery, and tampings, but targeted operations across. thank you very much indeed for the update there. >> brazil tourism minister has resigned in what is being seen as another blow for the president. the minister is the first prominent member of the party to step down.
1:24 pm
is becoming involved in corruption allegations and claimed that she manipulated economic information. all of which she denied. more on what she is facing. >> this is really a decisive day as you will find out what kind of chance she has to fight these charges. the democratic movement party is only one of 25 different political parties that make up congress, however, it is the big nest all of brazil, and it's been a loyal ally, up to the last years since she has been president, and they control this particular party, 69 seats in congress, meaning if this party breaks away which all indications are they most likely will, that would mean it would be very difficult for her to keep the coalition in congress she needs to fight back against these impeachment charges.
1:25 pm
so it is a very difficult situation. her and her advisors are literally counting votes. they need 171 to block impeachment. they think they barely have that. if they lose this it will that much more difficult for them. >> the world health organization has urged china to strengthen vaccine security. it comes after $48 million of illegal vaccines were sold to hospitals and meddle cacenters. lawrence louie has the latest. >> when news of a scandal involving the illegal sales of vaccines broke, people here were worried and angry. the case has concerned over food and drug safety. something that has long been an issue in china. now police say the vaccines were all made by license producers, but because they were not stored properly, the
1:26 pm
effectiveness could have been compromised. to reassure parents health officials and even the world health organization issues statements say the vaccines are unlikely to cause adverse toxic effects. the world health organization says the greatest danger is in parents using confidence in immunization schemes and there by declining to have their children vaccinates. it also shows that this case has exposed weaknesses in the vaccines. >> there are vaccines are in the private sector mean to be managed, scored distributed, and used in accordance with recognized standards. the organizations has urged

1:28 pm
>> he sat in front of politician to explain himself. he knows how hundreds of millions of dollars, he says he has no knowledge, but admits handling the money after it was transferred and he has named two others that are the real cuprite. >> nationals are big players, they are the ones behind the scam. >> it all began last month when hackers tried to steal nearly $1 billion. they managed to penetrate the federal reserve bank in new york. investigators say $21 million of that can be traced to kim. the case has revealed a weak system in the philippines may
1:29 pm
have left the banking industry open to money laundering. he is a director of one of the country's largest companies he says banks and wire transfer companies are not at liberty to disclose details without a court order. >> one of the most important things is to allow the central bank, and money launders console to be able to look into the accounts. the state bank has launched an inquiry into how it's security failed the government, has resigned. the bank has chained internal procedures. senators snow this is a complicated scandal that covered three continents and say they don't have all the answers yes. the philippines is not the biggest economy in asian pacific, but it has seen growth and increased nflment in current years and says it would like that to continue, but countries accused of
1:30 pm
money laundering can often be blacklisted on the money market. so cases like this can damage the reputation of philippines and give cause to potential investors to reconsider their future plans. al jazeera, manila. >> more for you on our website, donald trump campaign manager is now facing patry charges opinion an incident involving a reporter. another split decision, the supreme court rules on a close watch labor union case. president obama layed out a new plan to combat drug addition in the u.s. and the hijacker of an egypt air jet is in custody, and officials look to learn his motive.
1:31 pm
>> this is al jazeera america live from new york city. donald trump campaign manager has been charged with battering. the charge stemmed frommance incident earlier this month, where a reporter accused him of grabbing her by the arm as she tried to ask trump a question. michelle fields says her arm was left with a bruise after that. his attorney says that his client will enter a plea of not guilty, and is completely confident he will be exonerated. donald trump said this, he is innocent of this charge, he will enter a plea of not guilty, and looks forward to his day in court. he is completely confident he will be exonerated. trump later added on twitter, of course, wow, my campaign manager in a very decent man was just charged with assaulting a effort arer, look at the tapes nothing there. our political correspondent
1:32 pm
joins us. >> michael, what is the significance of a campaign manager at this stage in the game being charged criminally? >> yeah, it cannot be significant, listen, if it was any other politician, any other presidential candidate, and any other year, the campaign manager would have by now resigned or been fired. but that's not the case with donald trump, or the case with donald trump campaign. which is paul ryan's hometown, which is also the place where donald trump will be making an appearance this afternoon at a rally for his campaign, so we will see if there's any addressing of this issue, but you know donald trump has made a by point of pointing out the fact that ted cruz is a liar, even calling him regularly lions head. right now his campaign manager who has denied this all the way has had those refuted by video, and that's the big thing for a campaign to have to deal with, this is not something he is asked
1:33 pm
about constantly already, lit happen a lot now, so they have to dispense with him, or have to answer the questions. >> tell us more about this incident, as you said, there is tape of what happened, the reporter says she was injured tell us more about it. >> well, what happened is they were leaving an event that palm beach, and michelle fields who is at that time worked said she was pulled down. there were hundreds of people there, the campaign denied it. no i saw it happened and he was the only one for a while. it looked and they looked and finally tape came out surveillance tape from a bathroom there showing that, in fact, it did happen. that that's what brought them to request him to turn himself in this, which he did today. in palm beach county, and now he has retained two lawyers one of whom, ironically, his name is kyle copy, a former u.s. attorney from miami, who had to give up highspot as
1:34 pm
u.s. attorney back in the clinton administration for allegedly buying a stripner a strip club. not exactly the lawyer he would have wanted to hire. >> okay, all right. so let's talk about the tactics that have been used at the rallies and videos where ehave seen. do you think that as a result of something like this, now to a criminal level, that this is going to change tactics at the rally? >> that's a great question. you know, after -- when we saw this happen, a lot of people thought well, this is bound to happen. because of the violence, because of the protests, because of the heightened tensions at these trump events. people thought this would happen. what would have changed i don't know. the campaign is denying it. after saying that was alleged he came out with a tweet, directly after this, and in that tweet after this
1:35 pm
happened he said of michelle fields you are totally delusional, i have never touched you, in fact i have never met you. when that was sent, they thought okay, this is the campaign distancing himself at the violence when those things were happening with greater regularity, now it begs to question. is this a product of the kind of campaign and the kind of people that are coming to the events. and people are going to be looking at it now with greater intensity. >> i want to talk ache something you just said, in that tweet he called her dill lewis mall, and said i never touched you, there is clearly video that he did. how does that play into and accusations of ma soldierny, you are calling a woman dill lewissal, when you clearly did touch her. >> absolutely. and the honesty of his
1:36 pm
opponents and that comes into question as well. when you see something like this, you say listen, this is just consist with the type of rhetoric from the campaign, and also inconsistent with what he is calling on his opponents and how he is calling on them to behave. and it is -- i would say with your last question is the number one question about what will come from this mire cam shore, thank you very much. and as michael mentioned donald trump is holding a rally in wisconsin later today. authorities are promising extra security following an anty trump rally last night. six were arrests. police plan to have three times the number of normal officers out from today's events. we are a week away from the wisconsin primary. heather scott walker announced this morning he is backing ted cruz. >> absolutely.

1:39 pm
there is no precedent set, and the lower court ruling which found that unions could collect these fair share dues that rule willing now stand. >> so what does this decision mean for unions and teach evers? >> it is really a huge victory for unions. not just for teacher unions but public employees in general. the head of the n.e.a., issued a statement saying in freed rick, the court saw through the political attacks on the place of educators and other public employees. this decision recognizing that stripping public employees of their voices in the workplace is no what our country needs. on the other side, represented those sue hog didn't want to pay these dues that group now says look, this is too important of a decision to leave 4-4, in fact, we will petition the supreme court for a rehearing.
1:40 pm
and semplely, even though this sets no national precedent, there are about 20 states in the country, more than 20, that allow for these fair share dues they will be able to continue to do that, and in fact, rachelle, if it had gone the other way, unions say they would have been decimated. >> lisa, thank you very much. north carolina attorney general says he will not defend a controversy new state law that critics say discriminates against lgbt people. part of that stops transgender people from using restrooms. the state attorney general rye cooper was named in that case. he is a democrat zych says he opposed the law and wants it repealed. president obama headed to atlanta for the national drug abuse summit. they will discuss combating a grower epidemic, and the largest national collaboration of professionals on every level

egypt's minister of civil aviation aunderstand nod the peaceful resident lewis. all the passengers along with the crew are released. they are now safe. this is what we work on at any cost from the beginning. the hijacking cannot be brands an act of terrorism. all fact facts are now being looked at. >> egypt air flight 181 was flying from alexandria to cairo when it was diverted in cypress. the hijacker has claimed he was wearing an explosive belt, security teams could not verify this, but were treating it as a credible threat. >> this is striking at the heart of the whole system of aviation security. faith in the security system has been destroyed. the regime we are in now, is that anybody if there is no faith in security, anybody can make such a claim many the future.
1:48 pm
and the captain will do what he is told. >> egypt's government says details of the investigation will be released in due course, but now it is marking a small victory the release of everyone onboard egypt air flight 181. at al jazeera. >> authorities are turning to the fbi for help in examining hard drives and cell phones seized following the brussellsed is attack. the officials have gathered the devices from both suspects and their relatives in raids following the attacks. one of the relatives hair and clothe tests positive for explosives. investigators are hoping that phones and hard drives will shed light on the growing terror net work. crews today will run security at the airport, it is still not open for passengers. authorities are still looking for the so called man in the hat, seen walking at the airport long side two of the bombers be ever the blast.
1:49 pm
the f.b.i. says it is now analyze it is data inside the i-phone that longed to one of the san bernideno shooters. investigators say they were unable to lock the phone without help from apple. the justice department is now dropping the case against the company. al jazeera has more from san francisco. >> well, this is the end of a long and bitter court battle. other the past few weeks we have seen anle and the fbi posturing in public, but now suddenly the fbi says it dud not need apples help, it has access the i-phone and does not need the company's assistance. the idea here is the technical observers have suggested this is probably a matter of having copied the contents of the flash drive off of the phone and then sort of rewriting it back in, like loading a saved video game, when you get to a part that is too hard, and you keep dying you reload
1:50 pm
that point. some sort of concept like that, now to security analysts this is not good news. it is a sign that the government has figured out how to do somethingle that apple otherwise was supposedly the only institution that could do, and so the security vulnerability of that phone sort of is a shakes people's confidence in h it. but that said, it is important to understand this is not the end of this court battle or of any court battle around this kind of issue. there are at least half a dozen other cases, in which the justice department is in some way applying to apple for help in unlocking an i-phone that is being used as evidence in many a case of some sort. as an investigative avenue, so this phone, was one of the last sort of vulnerable phones, that was put out will release just before apple had wildly upgraded the regime, stuff that even it the company that created the product cannot break into the
1:51 pm
phone once it is out in the wild. the phone that i carry, probably you carry, those are vastly improved in terms of security. so apple will need to have -- the fbi or anyone applying to apple for help with this will need that company's help to break into any kind of newer phone. so even though this court case has ended in this way, it is undoubtly the case that you will see more court cases coming up in the future with this exact kind of argument, and that's why both anle and the fbi, the lawmakers have stepped in and figured out what rules we should live by when it come to this. >> reporting from san francisco. apple c.e.o. released a statement saying this. this case should never have been brought, apple believes deeply that people in h the united states and around the world deserve data protection. security and privacy. sacrificing one for the other, only puts people at greater risk. a mississippi woman is due in court today accused of planning to join isil.
